2017 Christmas Release | Christmas Children Mould

Making your own decorations is a cherished tradition in many homes. The difference with Prince August is that you can make metal decorations which are long lasting heirlooms. Just cast the figures from our mould as many times as you wish, depending on how much metal you wish to use, and prime and paint them. Alternatively you can simply polish them or antique finish them with some black gloss paint and thinners.

Christmas Children - Decorations for your tree this Christmas.

In December 2017 Prince August has released another adorable Christmas Decoration mould called Christmas Children. It includes two different figures in a single mould, with one child dressed as an Angel holding a tiny Christmas tree and another child as a carol singer. Both have small hoops on their heads for attaching string to allow you to hang them from your Christmas tree. They also have flat bases so you can stand them on your mantlepiece or table if you so desire.

This means you have quite a selection of decorations to choose from in total, including Santa himself, reindeer, candles and holly, Santa's sleigh and even snowflakes as well as many more festive options.
Prince Imrahil comes from the principality of Gondor called Dol Amroth. He lead an army of seven hundred men of Belfalas to the aid of Minas Tirith, Gondor's capital city, to resist the invading armies of Mordor and their Corsair allies. His forces were the only Gondorian cavalry at that battle. Imrahil was known as a great warrior at both the battles at the Pelennor field and before the Black gate of Mordor.

Mithril Miniatures traditionally releases a Christmas figure, themed around a leader. This figure is 32mm scale and requires assembly. It is therefore not primed or antique finished. This is a change in the normal format due to the new design process (i.e. helmet is separate from body) which made it very difficult to offer the normal finish without charging more than normal for it due to labour involved. To compensate for this the price has been reduced from 22 Euro to 19.76 Euro (including V.A.T).

There were 100 of these made. It was released in the middle of December 2017.

Mithril December 2017 releases: Aragorn at the Black Gate & Galadriel of terrible aspect.

Mithril Miniatures has released two more 32mm scale metal miniatures at the start of December 2017. The first is a Gold Status Fellowship winning idea from June 2016 that has suffered delays for the last couple of months. It depicts Aragorn at the Black gate of Mordor. Aragorn lead an army to the gate to challenge Sauron directly in order to distract his gaze from Mount Doom so that Frodo and Sam could destroy the One Ring, the source of much of Sauron's power. Product code is MZ640.

It has been several years since Mithril has released a vignette so we are delighted to a display an important event in the travels of the two Hobbits charged with the destruction of the One Ring. While in Lothlorien, Frodo wanted to give the ring to Galadriel, as she was one of the few beings on Middle-earth that could hope to stand against Sauron, its original owner. However such power was extremely dangerous, even if intentions were pure and in a vision Frodo saw what might occur if Galadriel welded such power, and it was terrifying. She refused the ring and Frodo had to continue on in his adventure. Galadriel of terrible aspect is MZ648. 

Both of these releases are unprimed and require assembly. Glue is not included.
